About the Event

Join us for our next TopTalks event on Wednesday, July 27, at 10:00 AM EST hosted through the Speakers Network program at Toptal! TopTalks are short TED-style talks in under 10-minutes presented by Toptal experts. Each talk showcases a well-formed idea, followed by a 5-minute Q&A session.

Come learn from fellow Toptalers, and if you’re up for it, give your feedback to help them improve! (Note: Rubrics will be provided at the event to all attendees who are open to sharing feedback. Or just come and learn something new!)

Speaker Line up:
Oscar Luiz: Disaster Recovery: Concepts - Part II
In part one, we discussed recovery plan concepts and outlines. In this continuation on Disaster Recovery Plans we will talk about disasters and how to prepare for them. For this, we will get help from Captain Adama and the crew of Battlestar Galactica. We will see what they have come up with and how we can bring it into our reality. So say we all!

Jason Lopez: Engaging Your Organization to Drive Digital Transformation
Why is it that teams with similar skillsets and experience have vastly different outcomes? Is it an issue with the client? Maybe the project manager? In this session we will explore some of the skills that are critical to a project’s success but are hard to adequately convey on a resume or job description - some call them the intangibles. Let’s spend some time learning about how we can bridge the gaps that so often exist between stakeholders, users and a development team.

Roxana-Maria Grigore: Leadership Development: Why We Need Leadership
Do you think developing your technical expertise is the only way to grow professionally? Based on her experience, Roxana will make a case for investing time and energy in developing soft/human skills, starting with leadership to create opportunities in our careers. This talk is relevant for everyone, but especially for managers for whom expectations have increased dramatically since the traditional/industrial/hierarchical management. If you think leadership is unnecessary, join for a challenging perspective.

Any Toptal Community member is welcome to present a talk. Interested in speaking at a TopTalks event? Sign up here or join #_prog-speakers-academy to stay up-to-date on all speaker training opportunities.
